It seems to be more of a clear sign that users are screwing things up. The topics aren't bad themselves-- it's the people discussing them that act disruptive and create an unpleasant environment. Patterns of serious business discussion are pretty much the same wherever you go on internet, f...

I think many agree, but: That's why I'm arguing for the sub-forum with all it's own rules, as opposed to no "serious" discussions at all. There's currently something of a staff consensus behind "we need some sort of clear changes" yes but even this consensus is a...

Xard im making fun of some crazy old dude's idiotic lines, thats it. It qualified for a fun little weird image so i posted it, that did not need to be censored. Well yeah and someone might find images like this funny and most fitting for the topic. Which doesn't mean posting such political ...

Good conversations. I'm very big on good conversations. Closest to fun, entertaining conversation on "serious subject" we've got here was towards the end of Gender Text Field but plug was pulled just when it was getting genuinely interesting. :dejected: Apart from that I can't...

Eliminating OT would still be easiest and most clearcut route. :P The splits make sense sometimes but other times it might be better to say hey: shut up about X or start a thread about it or just shut up about it period. I agree we're far too eager to spawn new topics through splits, especially ...

Nah, it was already like that when I first started out too. The film subculture was in it's heyday the year or so before I arrived. You have to go way back to find the days when there was no OT section. That would mean going back into Eva Monkey years aka way back. Having said that perhaps we s...

I have a feeling it won't happen at this point, but I think the idea of a more serious off topic forum limited to posters with a solid history and tenure on the forum wouldn't be a bad idea at all. I do see how a lot of unfortunate drama could unfold out of it but in my mind the pros outwei...

When I say throw people out I mean tell them to stay out of a thread and ban them if they don't. Not everything has to be done directly with a function of the forum software, after all. Being unable to block their posting into specific thread period we don't particularly affect the rate of ...

We don't actually have ability to make thread-specific bans on the current forum software (I'm not sure if subforum specific bans would work after some tweaking, I'm not techie)

We're already very, err, eager with our ban policies in comparison to most other forums member of which I've been. Typically we give out one serious warning and second offence lands a ban. Of course warnings for minor stuff can accumulate for longer period of time but really, we're anyth...

I just meant art styles (one of which was labelled "old anime in the chart I posted). I'm no nostalgist.

I saw that on Facebook. I was pleased that the reactions in the comments to my friend's posting were all along the lines of "That's horrible" rather than the expected jokes or other insensitivity. I would've certainly made a quip if this wasn't intentional act by some jack...

Many animators, mangaka etc. essentially doodle on their own time and post their creations on twitter in particular. Looking at profile and Saito's recently uploaded pictures I'd say that's most likely just hobby drawing. On same day he also posted Idolmaster characters among others.

This is controversial? I figured this was simply what everyone did but nobody said it because why say the sky is blue. Well this thread is full of people discussing about nonsensical things like "mecha designs" and "story" and "characters" and some "big name direc...
